Hallo :)

Any luck with adding rails support and rendering or  a railway physics vehicle type?

Unfortunately it's not a matter of luck, and while the railway tracks are in the plan for a long time, we have lots of open stuff that needs completing before we open new tasks.

Apart from secret contracted stuff - terrain self-shadowing, tree shadows, lights, SSAO, Rift DK2 support ...

Granted, the game in your picture has good graphics and a high frame rate...... but there's no way to save your progress, and you only get one life!!

 And the tracks editing takes so much time ! :D :D

Hmmmmmmm....... I wonder.........

Since they are redoing the road system anyway, and I assume adding support of some sort for waterways, it seems a shame to not throw track support in there while they are at it.........

A lot of people would be ecstatic........

Tracks alone won't be enough, you'll need also a physics module.

Tracks require two things, a modification to the road system (for track foundation), and a spline-based geometry generator (repeater, for cross ties and rails).
Repeater requires a modification of the material system to support small instanced geometry rendering without a full blown object pipeline. It's going to be used also for other road and railroad related things like poles, guard rails, but also highway connections, bridges and tunnels.
Material system update depends on shader system update (which is now mostly ready, so it's waiting on a free time slot).

It also needs a procedural rail system to automatically create cuts and blades in junctions.
